Copyright Statement

The Kythera Island Project reserves copyright in all material appearing in its pages accessible through the World Wide Web, unless there is an explicit statement to the contrary for the page in which the material appears (or for the index page of any section in which the material appears).

Permission is given only to copy material appearing in these pages for the purposes of reading them, executing them, or otherwise processing that is directly necessary in order to fulfil the apparent intent of the Kythera Island Project in placing them on the Web. Copies may be held on other systems only for personal reference purposes or for expediting access to them (e.g. storing in caches).

No permission is given to further reproduce or to distribute any material appearing in these pages.

Web Development and Authors

These pages were designed by Andrew Bevan (UCL) and Deborah Harlan (Oxford). The content was written collaboratively by various KIP researchers. We would also like to thank Christophe Helmke and Ash Rennie for their advice and/or assistance.

The pages are written in HTML combined with PHP scripting throughout. PHP is also used as a means of providing a web-based interface with a MySQL database. The home page uses the standard Dublin Core Metadata in order to describe the site and enable intelligent information discovery systems. We advocate the use of open source technologies.
